Cane Corso, once used as cattle drivers, the Cane Corso is a classic Mastiff without the loose skin of the other related Mastiff breeds. Also known as the Italiano Mastiff, Cane Corsos are robust dogs with tight skin around the mouth which ensures less drooling than their loose-lipped Mastiff relations. Cane Corso coats are very coarse and thick. Cane Corsos can be aggressive with strangers, As puppies they need experienced handling with careful socialization. When fully trained, Cane Corso puppies and dogs make great companions and watchdogs. Cane Corsos are good with children if the puppy is raised with them. Cane Corsos are large dogs, they weigh from 80 to 160 lbs. and thrive on regular exercise. The Cane Corso Italiano stand 22-28" at the shoulders. Contact the Cane Corso breeders below to buy or adopt your next family friend. Search for the perfect Cane Corso puppy. When looking for puppies for sale, talk to responsible Breeders to buy your puppy. If possible meet the puppy’s parents for temperament and personality.

History
Descended from dogs used in Roman war, the Cane Corso's ancestors also fought bears, helped with hunting, and herding cattle and swine. Cane Corsos are excellent guard dogs and watchdogs, and function well as "catch dogs" or hunters. A Cane Corso can perform efficiently as a livestock dog, for example, to completely immobilize large prey like a boar, allowing it to be hogtied by stuntmen, butchers, hunters, farmers, and so on. The Cane Corso Italiano is a direct ancestor of the old Roman Molosser dogs, but is somewhat lighter in build as a hunter of large animals in the wild, and as "auxiliary backup" in battle. The Italian population has prized.

Temperament
Despite some recent press that described a Cane Corso Mastiff attacking a small child in Brooklyn, New York, these incidents are the rare exception. By far, the Cane Corso is exceedingly gentle (aloof with strangers, but not aggressive), a kind, loving, devoted, and protective pet. Only if the Cane Corso sees that its owners are in danger does it spring into action. Then, indeed, the Cane Corso can become a fierce protector.

Properly socialized, however, the Cane Corso Mastiff strives to please and forms close attachments to its human family. Nonetheless, Cane Corso puppies must be properly socialized to react appropriately under controlled circumstances. The Corso is truly the owner's "shadow," as it wants only to be close to those he or she loves. Your pet is very intelligent and will train easily, with a noble and quiet air about him or her unless he or she feels that you are in danger.

Appearance
Although a Molosser-type dog, your pet is not massive and bulky. Instead, it's athletic and muscular, large but not overly so. Your pet will reach approximately 23 to 27 1/2 inches at the shoulder and will weigh between 88 and 110 pounds in adulthood. The coat is short, stiff, and dense, with an undercoat that will thicken if the weather becomes cold. Colors include brindle, solid red or solid fawn, black, light or dark shades of gray and red, and perhaps a mask that does not extend beyond the eyes.

Perhaps what's most distinctive about your pet is that he or she appears exceedingly strong but streamlined rather than bulky. Athletic and with good bone structure overall, the feet are nonetheless catlike and look delicate. The tail is long, straight, and supple. The head is large and square, with a well-defined stop and an alert, attentive expression. Eyes are generally medium and almond shaped, and dogs with black muzzles have dark brown eyes while those with gray muzzles may have lighter colored eyes. Ears are set above the cheekbones and can be cropped or left natural.

Proper Environment
Cane Corso puppies needs a lot of exercise, as your pet is historically a working dog. That said, he or she can live outdoors with adequate shelter or in a house with ample room to run outside equally well. If you're not athletic, however, it's wise to get a different pet, as vigorous exercise is a must, ideally with you as a companion. Your pet will make an excellent jogging partner if you wish, and needs at least one very extended and brisk walk every day.

It's also worth it to note that your pet will seem to ignore pain, which means that containment tools like electric fences will not work to restrain him or her – not that that is really necessary. These dogs don't generally go running off, preferring to be around those they love, as true "homebodies." Firm, gentle discipline and a strong leash and secure fence are much better choices when you must restrict your pet’s freedom.

A special note about small children: The Cane Corso is an excellent family pet and guard dog for families of all kinds, but your pet MUST be properly socialized if he or she is to be around small children. These dogs can be "absolute terrors" if they're not properly socialized, largely a result of human failure to train, as opposed to a deficiency in the breed. Children must be taught to be dominant with these dogs, even in play, however, as your pet both wants and needs clear boundaries. Your Cane Corso Mastiff must never be allowed to think that he or she is in charge, but instead needs kind, consistent but firm dominance by humans – down to the smallest human family member – at every moment.

Health
Cane Corso puppies are quite healthy and grow to have a lifespan of between 10 and 11 years. While such problems are rare with this breed, your Cane Corso dog may experience problems like hip dysplasia, cherry eye, ectropion or entropion (a condition whereby the eyelids and lashes role outward or inward, respectively), and mange. Surgery can correct the eye problems, and hip dysplasia can often be avoided by choosing a puppy with normal formation of the hip joint.

By far the most dangerous problem with your pet, as with most large dogs, however, is gastric torsion, also called bloat or "twisted stomach (or gut)." This is a potentially deadly problem that can be fatal very quickly, within an hour of symptom onset. If your dog is trying to vomit and is unsuccessful, appears depressed, agitated, in pain, has a rock hard stomach, is breathing heavily, refuses to eat, etc., get to a vet IMMEDIATELY. Diagnosis followed by immediate surgery can save your pet's life.

Cane Corso Grooming
This is truly a "no muss, no fuss" pet. Your Cane Corso Mastiff is only a minimal shedder and should only need brushing a couple of times a week, with bathing only necessary if truly dirty.

Is the Cane Corso a good family dog?

While big and strong, the Cane Corso is also a very good family dog, being loving, and deeply attached to their family. Calm natured, and laid back, they are happiest when relaxing with their family. They are quick and capable at training as they are intelligent and eager to please. While great with kids too, they are not ideally suited for small children, but only due to their size.

Is the Cane Corso aggressive?

The Cane Corso is strong willed, and powerful, but not inherently aggressive with people. They will protect their family, but a properly trained dog will be calm and controlled with strangers, and welcoming when introduced. Their dominant nature makes them potentially aggressive with dogs, but with training and socialization, they are most often playful and happy with other dogs.

How big does a Cane Corso grow?

There is no mistaking the fact that the Cane Corso is a big, strong dog! The breed standard is a height of 25-27.5 inches for a male, and 23.5-26 inches for a female. While females weigh in at around 90-100lbs, a male can be up to 120lbs. Don’t try picking up a fully Cane Corso unless you want a bad back after!
